    hello Daniel Walthers, im aldi and im from indonesia, im so happy that i found you here. there are so many question about corvid that i wanna ask. but let me make it short,
    i have a baby crow but i dont know for sure what type of crow,
    can you help me to id him?
    i just train him to fly to me in the morning and evening after i came home from work.
    for next what kind of train should i use for him ?
    what is the best diet for him ? bcause until now i just givin him catfood.
    and my last question but not least, can i just let him free roam in front of my house rather be in cage, will he escape ? he seems already bond to me but im still scared bcause sometimes when i leave him alone in perch he fly to the rooftop from rooftop. but when i call his name he directly back to me.
    i will be happy if you have time to answer my questions !

    regards,
    corvid lovers from indonesia

      1). Yes, you could e-mail me a picture of your crow and I would be glad to identify him or her for you. My email is windingwoodsranch@gmail.com

      2) I would recommend using a loud whistle when you want him to fly to you. This will come in handy in the future when training.

      3)I would recommend adding some different types of raw meats–Ground beef,Ground turkey etc. 20% to 25% protein is the best amount of protein as a daily diet. Variety is the key to your Crow’s diet.

      4) letting your Crow fly loose during the day can many times get the bird in trouble. Your bird could wonder away and not return. This could be due to domestic dogs, Cats, or people getting to him. Just a few days ago I received a call from a customer that lets her Crow fly loose every day during the day. She has been doing this for the last 1 1/2 years. She told me he flew away and never returned. She was heart broken.

      Thank you for your great questions!
